This paper presents a comprehensive study on the fundamental differences between Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. In order to reduce the complexity in undertaking such a comprehensive study, the study is performed in a number of steps such as 1) Comparative analysis of the differences in Key Critical Success Factors (KCSFs) in MRP implementation with those in ERP implementation in the period prior to the millennium change, 2) Comparative analysis of the differences in KCSFs in MRP implementation with those of ERP implementation in the post millennium-change period, and 3) How the perceptions of the KCSFs and the processes in ERP Implementation change with time.
